Laurel Roth has over 35 years experience in Children's Ministry. She is a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center and Christian Life School of Theology.
Laurel has a teaching gift with a generational vision. She has taught the Word to many age levels from adults to children’s ministry, and junior and senior high school Bible classes at a Christian school.
She began traveling to Africa to impart a generational vision and to establish and strengthen children's ministries in 2010, and has ministered in several African nations. She also lived for one year in Johannesburg, South Africa. Her desire is to reach children who have never heard or clearly understood the Gospel message, and train workers how to lead children to Jesus and teach them the Bible at the level of their understanding.
"Laurel Roth has served to establish and extend God's Kingdom on earth for over 30 years. Laurel's peers recognize her as an ordained minister. She is an excellent teacher of God's Word to congregations, leaders, children's workers, and to children - an often forgotten part of the Body of Christ. Laurel has dedicated her life to be a "builder" and will serve any leadership with excellence, faithfulness and keen discernment. Laurel has been a faithful teacher and elder on our ministry team. Without hesitation I would recommend her ministry."

"My association with Laurel has spanned over 3 decades. In 1981 we teamed up for a church planting effort in Dublin, Georgia where we both still live and minister. Her influence has impacted my 3 children who are now serving the Lord in various aspects of ministry. Like hundreds of other young adults they know her as "Miss Laurel"; the one who taught them about the ways of God in children's church. As is her vision, she has already influenced the next generations. Knowing her character and effectiveness of ministry; her vision and passion for the children of Africa is genuine and God given. I join my voice with many others to give Dr. Laurel Roth my highest recommendation."

An able Bible teacher ministering to adults, her first passion is ministry to children and workers who serve children. God is using Laurel has an apostolic minister to sow a trans-generational vision into the hearts of all believers, but especially those who work with children. She carries more than a message; she carries a life that has proven itself over and over again. the nations are waiting for this!"

"The first time I heard about Laurel Roth was from a few of our ministers after she did a seminar on children's ministry. I received a very good report from each one of them. It was only a year later that I finally got to meet her, as she was highly recommended to assist in our local Children's Conference. Laurel had a seminar with our volunteers before the conference in preparation for outreaches and another one afterward as a platform to move from. We reached children over three days in three different communities. How awesome it was to see children's lives transformed as a result. We enjoyed Laurel's sensitivity to the Holy Spirit and her authentic way in which she deals with children. We were impacted by her ministry and we are grateful to Almighty God for her."

"Two words come to my mind when I think of everything Miss Laurel taught me . . . Destiny and Value. There was never a service where Miss Laurel didn't declare destiny over us and in doing so she placed value on our lives. I experienced the presence of God in a tangible way for the first time under her ministry and that is a moment I will never forget. It defined my life. It's a powerful reminder that no matter what I do or what happens around me, I have a destiny and there is a God who is present and who values and believes in me, and there is a children's pastor named Miss Laurel who believes in me also."

"If it wasn't for Miss Laurel's influence in my life, I'd lack the knowledge that leads to the deep faith I'm so fortunate to have. I pray that my son is blessed to have a "Miss Laurel" in his life for the times when Mom and Dad don't have all the answers."
